Rethinking Shelter to Weather the Storm
Jennifer Castenson, VP of Programming at Hanley Wood sat down with Dominique Davison, Founder and CEO of PlanIT Impact, Jon Philipsborn, Climate Adaptation Practice Director at AECOM, and Fred Schereiber, COO of AMLI Residential to discuss climate change, the role asset owners play in it and the risks associated. The root of the problem? Buildings. Buildings are being built the same way they were 50 years ago and we wonder why extreme weather events destroy them. What steps need to be taken to avoid this? Why is no one using the technology we have now to create better buildings? Risks can not be avoided but the measure of the risk can be lowered.
